YSL have just launched a brand new fragrance and mascara as a duo- Black Opium Floral Shock and The Shock mascara. This is the first time that YSL have done a make up and fragrance co-launch, and it's a good one.
This palette has been a cult beauty product amongst make up obsessives and bloggers for months now, and I finally managed to get my hands on one. It's my first Anastasia Beverly Hills product, and I'm seriously impressed. There are so many newly launched eyeshadow palettes out there (most of them- in my possession), but this one is just outstanding. Honestly, believe the hype!
I'm such a huge Urban Decay fan, and a few months ago they launched a new eyeshadow palette in the Naked range called 'Naked Ultimate Basics'. I don't think I've ever been an avid lover of a nude eyeshadow palette (I usually purchase my nudes as singles) as I'm quite fussy with palettes.
Oh my goodness! This palette launched on Cult Beauty a couple of weeks ago, and I honestly thought there was going to be a scramble for it as everyone had waited ages for it to launch after weeks of teasing from Cult Beauty. However, the palette was available for a couple of days before selling out. I think this was because of the hefty £56 price tag- I saw a lot of people complaining on Twitter about this and I have to agree with them, but temptation got the better of me!
Tria is the king of at-home laser beauty devices. They're particularly well-known for hair removal but their anti-aging device has also proved to be very popular. Recently, they've launched a laser device targeting the eyes: the Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser, which aims to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
GOSH recently unveiled its SS16 collection at the Metro hotel in London, and I loved every single piece of it. The new collection sings to the tune of natural/raw beauty, and consists of matte lipsticks, illuminating highlighting drops, lip oils, nude eyeshadow sticks, and of course- a sister palette of the 9 shades shadow collections: To Be Cool In Copenhagen. The concept of natural looking beauty really appeals to me, and I'm glad that GOSH has covered it.
Until recently, there hasn't really been anything new or exciting from Revlon. But now they've done something incredibly brave by discontinuing their entire mascara line. Their previous mascaras have now been replaced by a brand new collection. At first, I thought it was a shame that the original line was being discontinued (I was a fan of the Lash Plumping Mascara) but after trying the new mascaras, I believe this was a good move for Revlon.
The new packaging isn't as glamourous as Revlon's previous mascaras, but I think the simplicity of them can be a good thing as it allows consumers to know exactly what they're getting, rather than simply being influenced by fancy packaging. I'm a sucker for pretty packaging so this definitely applies to me!
L'Oreal Paris recently unveiled a new addition to the Volume Million Lashes mascara line- Feline. I'm lucky enough to already have quite long eyelashes, so a mascara has to be very special enough for me to love it, and I think this one is brilliant. L'Oreal Paris have thrown this one out of the park!

My favourite product from Chanel has to be their Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadows- I currently own Emerville, Mirifique, and now the latest 'Mirage': a shimmery golden copper shade. Mirage shines beautifully in the reflection of the light, and is versatile enough to create both a day or night look.
It comes with a mini Chanel eyeshadow brush but to be honest, because the texture is so creamy I prefer to actually apply it using my finger. The colour is also very build-able so whether you prefer a subtle or a bold look, the eyeshadow can, and will deliver either. Plus, the formula being incredibly soft allows you to blend it well.
GOSH recently launched a collection of 9-shade eyeshadow palettes inspired by American cities; New York, Los Angeles, and Vegas. Like Vegas itself, the Vegas palette is full of bright colours that any girl would fall in love with.
The palette itself is super sleek and compact, with an incredibly clear mirror that's decent sized. It's a shame that the palette doesn't come with an eyeshadow brush, but I think this is because GOSH want you to use good professional brushes (that probably wouldn't fit in the palette) in order to get the best out of the eyeshadows.
I've never blogged about a NARS product before so I thought this was a product worth writing about as I'm taking a liking to it so far.
This is the NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner- which is essentially a long-lasting eyeliner, and it really is long-lasting, although it can be quite stubborn to remove but it's easy to remove with a make-up wipe.
The eyeliner is quite rich and creamy in texture, so the colour glides onto your lids, and the eyeliner makes a precision line which you can then build up upon to make it thicker.
Another thing I like about this eyeliner is that it doesn't smudge even after hours of wearing it! I took the photo below 8 hours after swatching it! Even if you rub or deliberately try to smudge it, chances are it won't. But that doesn't mean your eye make-up won't ruin if you do smudge it!
I love this eyeliner in the colour St. Marks Place! It's a Bright Violet colour, which reminds me of the Royals! Here's a swatch:
What do you think of these? Do you like the colour?
